Providing innovative and personalised IELTS resources exclusively for British Council IELTS test-takers 

British Council IELTS launches a new service, IELTS Ready: Premium, providing innovative support for those preparing to take an IELTS test with the British Council. 

The new platform will provide personalised IELTS resources to British Council test takers according to their progress, including 40 IELTS mock tests, recorded classes and will be fully supported by native English speaking IELTS experts. Test takers can perfect their IELTS preparation with practice tests in both timed and untimed formats, with all answers analysed to inform the most useful exercises for test-takers to practice. 

The IELTS Ready: Premium platform is powered by Guided e-Learning (GEL), a leading provider of digital learning in English Language Teaching based in London.

Test takers will also be able to access: 

  • Writing practice with model answers to show what examiners are looking for to achieve required scores
  • Feedback from IELTS experts on every reading and listening question
  • Tailored support to target areas where test takers need to improve
  •  Familiarisation videos so test takers are prepared for their test 

Test takers receive unlimited free access to IELTS Ready: Premium from the time they register for IELTS with the British Council until 7 days after their Listening/Reading/Writing test date. 

During a successful pilot period, the platform achieved high levels of user satisfaction and engagement amongst test takers. 97% of users said it helped them achieve their desired score and 98% said they would recommend the service to others. 

Andrew Mackenzie, Director of IELTS at the British Council, said: “We want to give our IELTS test takers every tool we can to achieve their ambitions of living, working or studying overseas. 

“We are therefore excited to launch IELTS Ready: Premium, to help them feel fully prepared and have the best chance to fulfil those dreams.”
